How's that "Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act" working out for ya?

Approved by the Biden administration in 2021.

Almost $8 billion allocated for EV charging stations. So far, 8 have been built.
Almost $42.5 billion allocated to DEPLOY high speed internet access. So far, ZERO people or businesses connected, no construction projects slated to even begin before 2025.

I wonder where the money has been all this time.

A question that should be asked often.

Audit is not complicated.

It just needs to done properly and regularly.

“The technology revolution has transformed organizations across the private sector,” Rumsfeld said at one point. “But not ours, not fully, not yet. We are, as they say, tangled in our anchor chain. Our financial systems are decades old. According to some estimates, we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions.” -Rumsfeld 9/10/2001

Has it been tracked yet, 23 years later? :man_shrugging:t4:

Sometimes I truly wonder how the he-- we are going to
‘Right the ship’ when EVERY THING is so screwed up.
It’s like NOTHING is Normal anymore, Everything is
more complicated and NOTHING HAS BEEN IMPROVED.
‘Build Back Better’ HA!

You probably can’t even say ‘This is RETARDED’ anymore! without offending a Demoncrat!

Had like 6 fiber optic companies putting in cables out on the boulevard. One managed to take out the marked water line to the house. Got all this weird cheap grass they threw in over the rutted damage they’ve caused. Thinking there’s government money involved as enthusiastic as they all seem…

EVERY TIME they repave the streets in Cactus Junction
They are pretty good…for about a month.
THEN they come in and tear them up for new Fiber Optics,
Manhole covers, sewer grates, water lines what the phuck ever.
Then they take the Lowest bidder (the .gov does this all the time)
and these folks ‘Patch’ the holes!
A friggin’ disaster every time!
I’m surprised they don’t have PRIDE Contractor’s hired
" We like filling in your Holes!"

Every time they repave a street here water mains start breaking. You know the rest.

The mains are ancient and none were mapped out over the years. Random leaks year round but when winter hits lookout!

We also have 3 state highways that run through town which are a disaster for the same reason. The gas tax in Illinois is $.46 a gallon and July 1st goes up another 2. Can you imagine the revenue brought in by the state? Our State highways are embarrassingly bad north, south, east and west.

Interstates in Illinois seem about 50/50 unless your around Chiraq. I-55 up there has been a construction zone since I started driving in 1976.

Look at all the propaganda on the media and you will figure out where the money goes.
